<h3><b>Personal trainer London: find your fitness instructor!</b></h3>

<span style="font-weight: 400;">According to a recent study commissioned by the British Lung Foundation, only about 12% of the adults surveyed declared working out at least once a week, and about 1 in 4 adults actually actively try to avoid exercise.</span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">About 20% of those who exercised cited their motivation as being wanting to look good, and 27% as wanting to stay healthy to prevent future illnesses.</span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">These numbers show that there is a growing concern for physical health and that the British population is beginning to engage in more physical activities to keep fit.</span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">Moreover, our modern-day society must face various global health concerns, some of which can even lead to deadly chronic diseases, such as malnutrition, physical inactivity and stress, which in itself may lead to depression, obesity, hypertension, diabetes or even cancer.</span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">However, to prevent the onset risk of such pathologies, everybody can agree on one point: it is crucial to practice at least one or two sports in order to stay in shape.</span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">In the Big Smoke, the hectic London life can become taxing for some.</span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">Another good argument in favour of exercising, since it helps to blow off steam, clear your mind and get away from the hustle and bustle of city life (car horns, motors of all kinds, etc.).</span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">But this isn’t a one-man job. And you, of course, ignore the strengthening exercises you need to do in order to tone your body and the stretches required to loosen your muscles and tighten your skin.</span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">Why not then join a fitness centre or gym in one of London’s 32 boroughs, in order to benefit from proper individual coaching?</span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">Superprof tells you all you need to know about personal training in London. But let’s start with the basics. </span>

<h3><b>What is personal training?</b></h3>

<span style="font-weight: 400;">In London, the offer of fitness lessons that allow you to stay in shape is abundant. From individual coaching at home via the now well-known platform Superprof, to fitness clubs, sports clubs, local and private sports associations and everything in between. </span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">However, it would be ill-advised to just dive in head-first. It’s important to know how to choose the right structure, to identify your personal objectives and to carefully select your personal trainer.</span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">We are often given the cliché image, usually thanks to TV, of the thickset, superficial trainer with bulging muscles who trains his rich clients (usually women) in their luxurious upper-class neighbourhood mansions.</span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">This is, of course, a bit cartoonish, as personal fitness instructors are a lot more than that.</span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">They are sports professionals who teach you how to exercise properly and who supervise your movements to make sure you’re doing them well.</span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">Their goal is to motivate their students and to help them progress so that they can improve their physical condition, all while making sure they enjoy themselves in the long term.</span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">As such, they provide individual support by measuring their clients’ physical capabilities and by enticing them to multiply their athletic performance.</span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">Personal trainers often give lessons at their client’s home, but can sometimes intervene in fitness centres or gyms.</span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">Students seldom go to their trainer’s home for their fitness lessons.</span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">Personal training lessons strive to quickly tone and strengthen your body. But they also do much more than that. </span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">Personal trainers don’t just intervene on a fitness level, though. They also provide guidance on nutrition and food hygiene, putting themselves in a nutritionist’s shoes.</span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">And, since trainers need to know the anatomy and physiology of the human body, in order to properly teach you about muscles and how exercise works, they need to be properly certified (Level 2 and/or Level 3 certificate, accredited by CIMSPA and REPs), so that they are recognised by both fitness professionals and insurers.</span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">Otherwise, beware of injuries (joints, muscle tearing or spasms, lumbar or back pain, etc.)!</span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">Personal trainers are professionals when it comes to exercise, the chemistry of the human body and biology, in order to help their students progress.</span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">So, you’ll be able to heed their advice as if you wanted to become a high-level athlete!</span>

<h3><b>What to do with your personal trainer in London</b></h3>

<span style="font-weight: 400;">Whether it’s at home or at the gym, professional fitness instructors can be beneficial to all types of people, from lazy beginners to professional-level athletes.</span>

<h4><b>Why invest in personal coaching in London?</b></h4>

<span style="font-weight: 400;">First of all, being supported helps you get motivated. And maintaining said motivation isn’t always easy, especially if you’ve been inactive for a while.</span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">On top of that, when you exercise on your own, like when you lift weights at home, you’re not necessarily aware of the mistakes that you’re making.</span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">One wrong move, going at a pace that’s too fast for your level, or simply breathing wrong can become counterproductive.</span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">Therein lies the central importance of a personal trainer. As fitness instructors, they accompany their students and see to their progress.</span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">They sell an “at-home coaching” service to their students, and they build personalised fitness programmes adapted to each, in order to best meet their objectives.</span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">One of the primary motivations for athletic training in the UK is often to get back in shape.</span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">Personal training can include a sort of “fat camp”, or slimming treatment, for people who are overweight and who would like to skim down.</span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">Someone who’s obese, for example, will probably find it difficult to force themselves to exercise regularly and to sweat until they have a flat stomach or rock-hard abs.</span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">In that case, they can resort to their coach’s dietary advice, as well as the exercises they’ll recommend to lose weight (including muscle strengthening, stretching, ab and glute exercises, leg flexes, squats, weight-lifting, etc.).</span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">Personal trainers are also personal development coaches who will mentor not only those who are overweight but also lazy people and professional athletes:</span>

<ul>

 <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">To limit the incidence of heart disease</span></li>

 <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">To gain self-confidence</span></li>

 <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">To enlarge the rib cage</span></li>

 <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">To gain muscle mass</span></li>

 <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">To loosen your muscles</span></li>

 <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">To tighten your skin</span></li>

</ul>

<span style="font-weight: 400;">This individual coaching can also be used as an opportunity to review your shape since your trainer will measure your heart rate in order to determine your training programme.</span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">You will be able to see fast results if you manage to keep your initial good resolutions!</span>

<h4><b>The benefits of personal training with Superprof</b></h4>

<span style="font-weight: 400;">Regular exercise leads to a relaxed body.</span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">The stretching and contracting of the muscles helps eliminate toxins, binding fat into muscle mass.</span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">What’s more, a regular athlete’s heart rate actually diminishes over time, meaning that exercise helps prevent the onset of heart disease, blood disorders, or other serious organ diseases.</span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">Other benefits of a customised personal training programme:</span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">Firstly, having a coach at home helps eliminate stress and gives you confidence.</span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">The best breathing (especially if you don’t smoke) that ensues will make you feel so much better!</span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">Your body will follow a strict training programme, under the trained eye of your instructor.</span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">All exercise carries many benefits for self-affirmation and well-being, and there are a number of different activities you can choose from, according to your personality, that will help you get there:</span>

<ul>

 <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Crossfit</span></li>

</ul>

<ul>

 <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">C</span><span style="font-weight: 400;">ardio training exercises</span></li>

</ul>

<h3><b>Our personal trainers at Superprof London</b></h3>

<span style="font-weight: 400;">Many fitness instructors put their trust in us in Greater London.</span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">In the Square Mile, finding a personal trainer will be much easier than finding a flat! All you have to do is sign up on the Superprof platform and choose your coach based on a number of different criteria, such as:</span>

<ul>

 <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Hourly rate</span></li>

 <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">The training completed by the trainer (Level 2 certificate, Level 3 diploma, etc.)</span></li>

 <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Where the coach is located</span></li>

 <li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">The type of physical training required for the lesson</span></li>

</ul>

<span style="font-weight: 400;">To lose weight, feel comfortable in a size 6 and show off your perfect body, there’s no point in binging on amino acids and creatinine. Your movements will “simply” have to be carried out in an educational way and demonstrate perseverance.</span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">That’s why it’s important that personal trainers be sure of themselves so that they can confidently teach their students the correct positions and make their clients feel comfortable.</span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">As personal training sessions are fairly consistent (often weekly), you will also need to find a coach who’s nice, someone whom you’ll get along with (considering you’ll have to see each other pretty often). </span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">Often, a first lesson is offered for free by our fitness instructors, which allows you to test out a fitness session before looking for another instructor if the chemistry isn’t there and you don’t feel comfortable continuing.</span>


<span style="font-weight: 400;">Whether you’re looking to bulk up or, on the contrary, lose weight, to rebalance the energy in your body, to benefit from diet tips, or to get back in shape, you have no more excuses to multiply your physical attributes in London!</span>
